Same thing happened to me, my advice is to get a genuine one, I didn't at first and the quality was poor so I ended up spending more money and buying genuine.

Technical Workshop / Re: Edition 30 bottom end failure

Don't know if anyone is intrerested......The reason was failure of oil pump chain tensioner. As of today the car is now running, I had the engine rebuilt, with second hand head by a company in stoke(very helpful)and full turbo overhaul. Did the work myself on the drive hence  the time it took me to complete, but now over the moon.
Max.

    Mk5 General Area / Re: What did you and your MKV do today?

    seats out, normal vac and then wet vac seats and carpet multiple times until the wet vac water doesn't look like Newcastle brown. let it dry then spray it all, including head lining with autoglym anti-stink spray. That's what I did to get rid of dog hairs/stench.

    How big a job is it removing the seats ?
    What with all the electronics etc and warning lights 🤔
    Used to be a 5 min job in my old MK2

    Mk5 General Area / Re: 2005 GTI - Cam Follower question
    « Last post by delob on Today at 02:27:07 PM Started by mac456  »
    Is there a specific mileage interval for when this should be done. I have a very low mileage 2008 Gti and during a recent visit to VW dealer for a DSG service they suggested that mine Cam Follower couldn’t possibly need to be replaced.

    i would check every 20-30k
    Cheers
